Barnsley will still be without Danny Haynes, Reuben Noble-Lazarus, Bobby Hassell and Goran Lovre when they welcome the Tigers.
Strikers Haynes and Noble-Lazarus continue to miss out with hamstring and ankle injuries respectively while defender Hassell (groin) and midfielder Lovre (knee) also remain sidelined.
There is better news elsewhere for manager Keith Hill as Matty Done and David Perkins will again be available.
Winger Done and diminutive midfielder Perkins returned from their hamstring injuries to feature in the 2-1 defeat to Bristol City and neither player suffered any reaction.
Striker Craig Davies will be hoping for a place in Hill’s starting XI after coming off the bench to score his first Barnsley goal in the loss to the Robins.
Hull boss Nigel Pearson has no new injury concerns.
But the Tigers will have to do without striker Martyn Waghorn once more.
Waghorn, on loan from npower Championship rivals Leicester, will miss his fourth successive game with a hamstring strain which means Pearson will probably continue with joint top-scorers Matty Fryatt and Aaron Mclean in attack.
Midfield duo Nick Barmby (calf) and Martin Pusic (hip) missed Saturday’s 1-0 triumph over Nottingham Forest and look set to remain on the sidelines.
Captain Andy Dawson and former Manchester United winger Cameron Stewart remain sidelined but the pair are nearing a return to full fitness.
Pearson named an unchanged side in the victory over Forest and could field that starting XI once more at Oakwell.
